    Not Safe For Work Favourite Double-Albums

    Have been listening to Springsteen's album The River today and it got me thinking about how difficult it is to produce a double-album that actually deserves its length. Can only think of a handful that don't ultimately descend into self-indulgence or repetition so here's my favourites;

    The Clash - London Calling: Seem to remember it being met with a collective shrug when discussed in discord but I love almost every track without exception. The exploration styles is pretty remarkable from what had previously been a four chord punk band.

    Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde: Obviously i was gonna mention Bob. Not gonna pretend that this album isn't self indulgent but the explosiveness of Bob's lyrics are unparalleled here.

    The Beatles - The White Album: There's not really much I can say about this, it's the definitive double album in many ways. There's a handful of tracks that I don't care for but I also think the album as a whole would be poorer with their absence.

    Nick Cave - Abattoir Blues / The Lyre of Orpheus: This very much feels like two separate, fully-realised albums both of which are absolutely phenomenal. It was my introduction to Nick Cave so it'll always be a special album to me. Was definitely the right place to start since it encapsulates so many of the elements that make him such a remarkable artist.


    What are everyone else's favourite double-albums?

    Oh yeah don't know how I forgot Mellon Collie and the infinite Sadness. That's definitely up there with the best.
